A tall, foul-mouthed leprechaun, a dead wife, and a cab driver walk into a bar. Of all the changes Bryan Fuller and Michael Green’s American Gods adaptation has made to Neil Gaiman’s novel, the most delightful has been throwing Mad Sweeney, Laura Moon, and Salim together. In this exclusive clip from Starz, watch their journey continue in the seventh episode.
The three characters began their oddball road trip in the sixth episode, “A Murder of Gods”. Laura Moon (Emily Browning) wanted to follow her husband Shadow (Ricky Whittle), who is the “light of her life.” Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) wanted to follow Laura to get his fuckin’ coin back and reverse his bad luck. Meanwhile, armed with his new life and new identity, Salim (Omid Abtahi) wanted to find the Jinn. Together, they hit the road in Salim’s questionably sanitary yellow cab, each pursuing their disparate goals.
Their odyssey continues in the seventh episode, “A Prayer for Mad Sweeney.” And shockingly, it doesn’t look like they’re going to hold hands and sing “Kumbaya” together anytime soon.
In this exclusive clip, Laura and Mad Sweeney argue about whether to release Salim as they continue their trip to the House on the Rock.
American Gods Season 1 is currently airing Sunday nights on Starz. “A Prayer for Mad Sweeney” airs on Sunday, June 11.
